The Shire was recently named as the winner of the Excellence in Inclusive Community Design Award at the National Disability Awards ceremony on 7 November. The judging panel concluded that Collie was a welcoming, inclusive and vibrant community that prioritises compliance with accessibility standards across its CBD infrastructure, buildings and facilities. It is committed to delivering the highest standard of accessibility, and has undertaken a number of recent improvements to increase accessibility for people with disability.
A highlight includes an upgrade to the town's 50-metre Olympic-size swimming pool to incorporate purpose-built ramp access for wheelchair users and people with impaired mobility.
